Earl:
I have got a lot of respect for you so if you are bustin' me for my post then Thank You 'cuz I need to be cut down as often as possible.
Regardless, I've been following the band for about 28 years and never knew about the "Dark Star" from Winterland (1973-11-11)until someone passed it along to me from here earlier this year and it has served me very well. As a result, I must say that like a great Dead concert with the "x" factor there is a "timeless" performance of the Concertos worth checking out at least once: Boston Baroque Orchestra conducted by Martin Pearlman (1996) - it is Pearlman that sits down at the harpsichord for the piece I mentioned in concerto No. 5. (I think it was recorded down the street from the good ol' Worcester Centrum.) Double-box set for $25 on Amazon; check out the reviews. --- AshesRising

Yup, bustin' on the world. I actually listen to tons of classical and classical guitar stuff, but don't even know what it is or who dunnit. I bought a music teachers record collection spanning from the 40's to the 60's several years ago that brought a hugely diverse amount of listening enjoyment into Mr' Earls world.

Got me into Miles and and some traditional flamenco, calypso, Dixieland, early bluegrass/Americana like Jean Ritchie and more. Anyway, digitized some of it, and sold the rest. The time spent here is a sentimental recapturing of my youth and an affirmation that the magic I saw then stands the test of time. In the 80's & 90's I spent more time reading about the band than listening. The availability of shows and research finding those pearls amongst oysters has been hugely rewarding.

To answer the thread question, my latest purchases have been the new Dylan CD and Mark Knopfler & Emmy Lou Harris,,,both excellent but not world shattering.
